Mark and Jennylyn are better off as friends

BETTER OFF WITHOUT EACH OTHER – Now that Mark Herras and Jennylyn Mercado are no longer s sweet-hearts, how was their working relationship in Regal’s "Eternity"?

"Even much better," says Jennylyn. She explains that when they were an item, they were like cats and dogs, panay ang away. "Which affected our work. Too much pressure. But now that we are just friends, ang gaan ng trabaho."

Why they broke up is history, but Mark is said to be an "indifferent boyfriend and an incurable womanizer." Mark is "loveless" (really?) these days, while Jennylyn is being ru-mored with this and that guy. "Hindi po totoo, wala pang kapalit si Mark sa puso ko."

Anyway, Jennylyn is getting to be a better actress after breaking off with Mark. She merited acting nominations for "Blue Moon." As the song goes, "Without a hurt the heart is hollow." But it must be said that she’s been hurting since child-hood, abandoned by her mother and battered by a step-father.

In effect, the original Starstruck survivors are better off as friends, without each other – romantically that is.

Jennylyn Mercado and Mark Herras are not out to give their fans false hopes in “Eternity.” No reconciliation for them, but the beauty of the movie itself should be enough reason to watch it.

“I admit there are some scenes with Jen where I almost forgot that we’re not lovers anymore. I miss kissing her the way I used to,” sighs Mark. Says Jen, “I psyche myself that it’s just work. Our being just friends na lang helped me in being more relaxed sa mga eksena namin. No more tension unlike when we were still on. Konting tampuhan apektado performance namin.” Although Mark and Jen may no longer relive their moments as lovers, at least they were able to recapture the feelings even just for their scenes in the film.

Mark awang-awa kay Jen

NAGTI-TRAINING si Mark Herras ngayon for Super Noypi at awang-awa siya kay Jennylyn Mercado, co-star niya sa SN at Eternity, dahil bugbog-sarado ang ex sa mga pinag-aaralang stunt, pati na sa harness at kung anu-ano pa.

“At least medyo flexible ang katawan ko dahil dancer ako. Medyo nakakaya ko ang training, pero sina Jen, nakaaawa talaga,” tsika pa ng aktor.

Kaya naman kahit na medyo late dumating at solo na lang si Jennylyn sa naturang presscon for Eternity, nakuha ng young actress ang loob ng karamihan sa press dahil sa magagandang salitang binitawan ni Mark tungkol sa kanya.

Kaya hindi na kami nagulat sa sagot ni Jen tungkol sa reincarnation, na siyang tema ng Eternity. If ever mabuhay siyang muli at bigyan ng chance, maging isang Jennylyn Mercado pa rin ang gusto niya, at si Mark pa rin ang nais niyang maging first boyfriend.

Jennylyn, Mahal Pa Rin Si Mark

Inamin ni Jennylyn Mercado na komportable siya sa kissing scenes nila ni Mark Herras sa Eternity. Magaan naman daw ang mga eksena.

"Kumusta naman ang samahan ninyo ngayon ni Mark?" tanong namin.

"Wala namang ipinagbago dahil friends pa rin kami. Mas okey ngayong wala kaming relasyon kapag magkapareha sa pelikula. Noon kasi ay nag-aaway kami sa set kapag may tampuhan. Wala pa rin akong nakikitang kapalit ni Mark sa aking puso. Mahal ko pa rin siya. Open naman ako sa ibang manliligaw," aniya.

Sa sobrang dami ng commitment ay halos konting oras na lang ang tulog ng magandang aktres. Sanay na rin ito sa puyat kaya nagti-take na lang siya ng vitamins para magkaroon ng resistensya sa trabaho.

Ayon sa staff ng Eternity¹, kinikilig sila kapag nagsusyuting ang dalawa dahil napaka-sweet nila at parang ang pagmamahal nila sa isa’t isa ay hindi nawawala.

Jennylyn to other StarStruck stars: Be professional

JENNYLYN Mercado came so late to the presscon of “Eternity” last Sunday as she had to promote her “Letting Go” album in a Cavite mall. She looks so frail after getting hospitalized for very low blood pressure. What’s she doing to improve her health?

“I’m taking a lot of vitamins and supplements para lumakas ang resistencia ko,” she says. “Also, kapag puyat, I eat a lot para makabawi. Now that ‘I Luv NY’ is about to end, at least rest muna kami ni Mark (Herras) from taping. But I heard GMA-7 is giving me a new soap daw. Mark and I are busy now shooting our Metro filmfest entry, ‘Super Noypi,’ and it’s so tiring kasi puro fight scenes.”

How about her lovelife? Is she still going out with Patrick Garcia or Marco Alcaraz?

“No. Wala pa ring kapalit si Mark after we broke up. Siya pa rin ang nasa puso ko. But as of now, happy na kami being friends. Kasi noon, pag may tampuhan kami, pati trabaho namin, naaapektuhan. Now, very smooth ang trabaho kasi we deal with each other on a professional level lang. I’m happy being more focused on my career.”

What can she say about the StarStruck 3 girls, Iwa Moto and Jackie Rice, who’ve been suspended? “Well, gan’on siguro talaga. When you’re a teenager, gusto mo ma-experience lahat, including drinking and smoking. May kinalaman din kasi ang upbringing ng parents mo roon. In my case, ba-wal talaga sa’kin ‘yun kaya hindi ko ginawa. Dapat talaga, mas mahalin nila ang trabaho nila.”

She’s been directed by Mark Reyes before on TV, but it’s their first time to do a film together in “Eternity”. How was it? “Masarap katrabaho si Direk Mark dahil mahusay makisama. Okay siya as he’s also young like us. ‘Eternity’ is one of the best films I’ve made so far. It’s a beautiful love story that shows how the present can affect the past, as shown in the surprise twist in its ending.”

So which love team will carry “Eternity” at the tills: theirs or that of Dingdong Dantes and Iza Calzado? “It’s not a contest naman between us. Parehong maganda ang love stories namin at magtutulungan kami to attract more viewers to watch the film.”

Jennylyn mas feel kapartner si Mark

Si Mark Herras pa rin ang gustong partner ni Jennylyn Mercado. Bukod sa Eternity promo, busy rin si Jennylyn sa promotion ng kanyang se-cond album from GMA Records sa iba’t ibang provincial malls kung kaya’t late siyang nakarating sa presscon na binigay ng Regal para sa kanila ng partner niyang si Mark Herras.

Mabuti na lang at bu-mabagyo ng gabing yun so most of the press stayed. Anyways, she came and that’s all that matters. Sobra nga kasi kung magtrabaho sila ni Mark kung kaya’t palagi silang nagkakasakit.

Sabi ni Jennylyn, kahit sino pa man ang makatambal niya o ma-link sa kanya, it will still be Mark who will remain her most favorite partner.

Sa ngayon, friends na lang silang dalawa and although there is no talk of reconciliation, inamin ni Jennylyn na may pitak pa rin sa puso niya si Mark although hindi na raw ganun katindi tulad ng dati when they were still on. More than a year sila naging mag-boyfriend before they called it quits.

Ipapalabas na ang Eternity from Regal Films this September 6.

Buwan ng Agosto, may hatid na malas kina Jennylyn

by : Vinia Vivar

NAKAUSAP din namin sa said presscon ang adoptive mother ni Jennylyn na si Mommy Lydia at nabanggit niyang next week, naka-schedule siyang operahan sa balakang dahil may nabaling buto rito.

Aniya, mukhang hindi talaga maganda ang buwan ng Agosto sa kanila dahil tatlong taon nang tuwing sasapit ang nasabing month ay may mga problemang nangyayari.

“Nung una, naputol ‘yung isang paa ng husband ko, nung sumunod na taon, August din, na-paralyze naman ang katawan niya. Tapos ngayon, naputol naman ‘yung kabilang paa niya, nagkasakit si Jen at pati ako,” kuwento ni Mommy Lydia.

Naaawa na nga siya sa anak at ipinagdadasal niya parating makayanan ang mga pagsubok na dumarating.

Jennylyn: Mark still in my heart

“IF ever I’d have a boyfriend, I’d like it to be Mark (Herras) again,” thus Jennylyn Mercado declared in between incessant coughing during the latest presscon for the movie “Eternity” at Imperial Palace Sunday night. “Until now, siya pa rin naman ang nasa puso ko.” While Jennylyn stated that she has never fallen in love again since she broke up with Mark, a lot of names have been linked to her, including Patrick Garcia and Jeremy Marquez. Even her mom (her Tita, actually) has hinted that a reconciliation between Jennylyn and Mark isn’t remote. In fact, it could be sooner than we think. Their constant togetherness on the set of “Eternity” might have done the trick, but certainly, feelings from both end haven’t died, after all. Despite what happened (Mark having been rumored to have wooed other actresses, including Marian Rivera, Nicole Anderson and lately, Yasmien Kurdi) Jennylyn still regard him as “a good person, nice and good-looking.”

WE ASK Mark Herras if he really felt jealous when former girlfriend Jennylyn Mercado was linked to Patrick Garcia. "Hindi naman ako exactly nagselos," he says. "I just want to show na concerned pa rin ako sa kanya since we remain good friends. Somehow, I felt relieved when she told me friends lang sila talaga."

Looks like he’s still hoping they’d reconcile. "I’m not closing my doors naman to that possibility. But right now, mas smooth ang lahat na friends lang kami. Natapos nga agad ang movie naming ‘Eternity’ na wala kaming away-away like before na naaapektuhan pati work namin."

End na ng ‘giyera’ nina Jennylyn, Alessandra

DAILY INSIDER
by : Dinno Erece

WE’RE glad both Alessandra de Rossi and Jennylyn Mercado are open to reconciliation and forgiveness.

Iba na ang tono ng da-lawa sa Showbiz Strip-ped last Saturday night. True, hindi na nga nagsali-ta pang muli si Alex dahil sabi niya nga, hindi na rin naman sumagot si Jennylyn sa isyu na nag-involved sa kanilang dalawa, an issue named Jeremy Marquez.

Si Jennylyn naman, after a palaban phase, nagbago na rin ang tono niya and asked for Alex’s forgiveness and her willingness to work together.

Napakaliit nga naman ng showbiz and to think that they’re both Kapuso, hindi maganda kung may ganitong awayan.

Good karma rin ma-dalas ang kapalit nito specially sa projects nila.

Alex has Now and Forever -- Linlang na part ng Drama Rama Sa Hapon. At si Jennylyn , bukod sa kanyang I Luv NY na part ng GMA Tele Babad, a new movie is coming up, ang Eternity nila nina Mark Herras, Dingdong Dantes and Iza Calzado from Regal sa direksyon ni Mark Reyes at ipapalabas na ito this Sept. 6.

Hopefully, tapos na ang negang isyung nina Jenny at Alessandra at hindi na buhayin ng iba.
